5.0 out of 5 stars Great watch, a bargain., 24 Dec. 2012

This review is from: Laco 1925 Men's Automatic Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Brown Leather Strap 861688 (Watch)
I had been looking for a flieger style watch and came across this one on Amazon. It is made by the German watchmaker Laco which was one of the four makers of the original WWII Luftwaffe pilots watch that this design is based on. The watch is very clear to read as it should be and is well made. These latest models have a sapphire crystal and I know from experience that they just do not scratch unlike mineral or acrylic crystal. This particular model is slightly looked down on by the flieger watch aficionados on the watch forums because it has a Japanese automatic movement (Miyota 821a by Citizen), not a Swiss hand wound movement and because the lugs are a different shape to the original. However for most of us, this is a great looking quality watch which will last for many years and should be cheap to service. The only minor criticisms are a lack of anti reflective coating on the crystal and it's not possible to stop the second hand when setting the time.

Did I mention that the time keeping is exemplary? Over a week the watch lost or gained a second or so each day but had lost nothing overall by the end of the week. Amazing, it puts my £2000 Fortis to shame. :)
